15 Weeks Without a Smoke...(as of Tuesday!)

and it still isn't easy. for those of you that have never been addicted to something for 25 years, you just can't understand.

the poison has been out of my system for almost 2 months now. but, at least a dozen times a day, i keep getting nicotine fits. bad ones. first one is always when i wake days gone by i would be fumbling for the pack and the lighter, now, i know that it only lasts about 30 seconds to 1 minute. i can last that long. i keep telling myself that, and it still works!

best part, though, is when i stop by my favorite watering hole after work, and see everyone running outside to smoke (CA, y'know!) and not feel the need to follow them.

well, i'm proud of myself.

thanks for visiting!

Hmmm...Maybe I Live In CA For A Reason...

here, we get an earthquake now and then, a drought on a fairly regular basis, and always an infestation of hippies, surfers, and tourists.

but, no hurricanes, or tornados, i guess that's worth something!

here in CA, were already used to paying the most money for gas compared to the rest of the nation, so the rise in fuel prices due to Katrina and Rita won't make Californians give up their imported gas-guzzling SUV's, the Californians will just continue to bitch about how President Bush and all Republicans created global warming and thusly caused the hurricanes that are now making gas prices higher.

Hmmmm...maybe the title of this post should have been "Hmmm...Maybe I Should Get The @%$& Out of California, and into a Red state"...

as long as it's a hurricane, tornado, and blizzard free area, i might think about it!

pray for the gulf coast, once again!

i'll try it again tomorrow after work.

I've Been a Bad Blogger

and i apologize to all of my loyal readers that have stuck with me so far.

i started this blog in March, which is one of the slowest times of the year in my line of work. i have had a lot of fun bringing you all my version of the news, a few of my favorite photos, and a war post or two back in the day, but i found that in the summer, my busy time of the year, plus quitting smoking, i had less and less time to focus on blogging.

my bad. i should have thought about that before i started the dang thing!

i didn't think i'd be popular. i didn't think that anyone would care one way or another if i blogged.

but, i did! and now, i have Primates and other wonderful bloggers wondering when i'll be back.


that's all for now!

13 Weeks!

i know i should have posted on the day, but it was the 13th week mark..might have been bad luck...

nah. i'm over that evil weed. even when i do have an urge to smoke, i can now write it off as a leftover of the habit, and not something i need to be too worried about. nicotine fits last about 30 seconds. i think i can last longer than that!

thanks again everyone that has been following my sporadic postings on my ordeal of quitting smoking, with occasional headline! when work slows down, i hope to be back to entertaining you, my loyal readers.

until then, Go Niners!

that's all for now!

that's all for now.

Dang, I'm Tired...

this is the busiest time of the year for the restaurant biz.

and, for those in the service industry, Labor Day has a different meaning. you labor your pinkytoe off serving all the folks that are in town due to the three day weekend, then get set for the next round of tourists...

oh well, winter is coming soon, things slow down a little then...

have a happy Labor Day weekend!
